Darcie Anthonisen, M.A., LPCC
I was born and raised in southern Minnesota. As a young adult, I moved around some for schooling and job opportunities. I came back to Minnesota in the fall of 2014. I have three amazing boys who I adopted from foster care. I enjoy being outside, camping and having game nights at home with my kids.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Saint Cloud State University in 2009 and my Masters of Arts degree in counseling from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in 2012. I was certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in 2020, and am currently working on my certification in Managing and Adapting Practice, and Parent-Child Interactive Therapy.
After moving back to Minnesota, I served as an outpatient therapist in a community mental health center in Saint James for almost 7 years. During that time, I was able to work with clients of all ages, as well as many different cultural backgrounds and diagnoses. I also provided school link therapy and was able to go into multiple public schools to provide therapy for children. Prior to moving back to Minnesota, I worked at an adolescent inpatient mental health treatment center. During my time there, I was able to provide individual, group and family therapy to children and teens.
I strive to help people grow and gain more self-awareness. I use a lot of evidence-based treatment models including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent-Child Interactive Therapy, and Managing and Adapting Practice. I use a strengths-based approach to help clients meet their individual goals and improve their quality of life.
